Question about Volvo 740
You probably have the small brakes up front, so your rims CAN be 14" and up. The offset for the earlier RWD platforms (240/740/760/940 and early 960) is 25mm and the bolt pattern is 5x 108mm.
This means that the easiest is to find wheels from other similar cars. If you're willing to google around and do some measuring, some of the Ford cars (Lincoln, Mercury, Land Rover and the Porsche Boxter from 2002 on) have a similar bolt patterns (5x4.25" or something like that).
If you're in Europe, look at the Peugeot rims.
You can even use more modern Volvo wheels if you're willing to use spacers. The newer rims are from 43mm to 52mm offset, so you will need anywhere from 15mm-27mm spacers to make them fit without rubbing your struts or other stuff.
Be careful with the rim WIDTH too. If they're too wide, even if you have the proper spacer, they might touch the outside of the fenders.

How many do you need? I have three Volvo rims that I took off my 88 Volvo. I had a flat tire and damaged one rim. I replaced all four rims with new generic ones, which was cheaper than buying one volvo rim. Let me know where you are located and see if we can work something out.

Spray starting fluid in the intake manifold with the throat open. Then try to start. if it starts briefly then you have a fuel pump or fuel relay issue. If it does not start after spraying starter fluid then you have a spark issue. Check the ingnition stage module on the inner fender behind the air cleaner and/or swap the radio suppression relay on the radiator fluid reservior.

There is a tool available from most auto parts supply outlets, it is a plate that has a compression bolt through it, you slide the plate into the caliper, and tighten the bolt against the piston, then keep turning until the piston is all the way in. These are relatively inexpensive and good to have for next time.
hope this helps.

I have a potential solution, but only if you give good thumbs up though:)
It's the fuel pump relay, located behind the ashtray.
It's the one on the right, of the two.
If you gently twist it l/r, while turning the motor over.
